Tonto Dikeh: I Cannot Marry An Igbo Man…They’re Too Nosy

Controversial Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, is in the news again.

The light-skinned actress who hails from Rivers State and is of the Ikwerre tribe, has slammed Nigerian Igbo men describing them as very nosy and therefore cannot see herself being tied down with one permanently.

Tonto, who is currently dating a man from Edo state in Nigeria was reacting to a question in an interview with one of the leading news magazines in Nigeria, the Punch Newspaper.

Below is a little excerpt from the interview:

Interviewer: We just learnt that you will be getting married soon to your new boyfriend who happens to come from Benin, Edo state. Why are so many Nollywood female starts getting snapped up by Benin or men from Edo state?

Tonto Dikeh: First of all, it is nobody’s business where my fiance is from. That’s out of the way, yes Benin men are great and very understanding. They are not sitting and judging you unlike an Igbo man that will want to be poke-nosing in everything you do. You make your money and the Edo man is not interested in your personal affairs . If Ikeep waiting for an Igbo man I will just end up eternally single.

Wow…blunt and direct; very typical of Tonto. Well, that is her opinion and she is entitled to it, but it is not to say she is right though. What do you think?
